Caturday - Updated

Updated 4:30 PM Central - Derby was helped to The Bridge a little more than an hour ago.  He was in renal failure and the vet gave a poor prognosis. Farewell my dear boy.


HiYa, Ducky here. It has been strange around here the past day. Mum locked me out of her sleepy spot last night but let Derby be in there.

Mum says Derby is not feeling well. A trip to our regular vet man Dr M, then he sent them off to the 'mergency vet man.

So can we please have purrs for my bro Derby. Thanks.

  55. ..... and St Francis said, "Come little one, there is nothing more I can do for you here, don't be afraid"......and St Francis gently picked up Derby and carried him  into the kingdom of heaven.....when the little cat looked around, he realized everything St Francis told him on his journey was true....heaven was beautiful beyond what mere words could express.....

    ...... and Derby saw there was no pain, suffering, fear, sickness, hunger, thirst or sorrow, until he looked down and saw the family and friends he had left behind. ......and for a very brief moment, the little cat too, was filled with sorrow.

    ....then St Francis bestowed Derby with a set of wings and said, "Use them to return to your family, when their need is the greatest, as nothing can separate your bond of love.  Hold each other in your hearts and your memories, until you are reunited again at heaven's door."

    ..... and when the little cat tried on his wings, he knew nothing was impossible...... when there is....love

    God's speed our friend, we hope HE grants your mom and brother peace in their hearts, you will be missed....we love ya dood....xxxxx

  134. The kitties before me were Mr. Teeth & Clarkie. Mr. Teeth was here first, and was about a year old when the Human brought Clarkie home as a baby kitten. They became the best of furiends for the next 10+ years. Sadly, Mr. Teeth (who was the Human's Best Kitty Ever --even *I* am resigned to that) crossed the Bridge too soon at about 11 yrs. old. Mr. Teeth had been super-bonded to the Human, and Clarkie was super-bonded to Mr. Teeth.

    After Mr. Teeth had been gone for a bit, it was very interesting what began to happen between the Human and Clarkie. Gradually, Clarkie kind of stepped up to Mr. Teeth's role: He began to greet the Human at the door when she came home from work, he began to sleep with her, he began to seek her out for play and laptime. It was very sweet (of course there was an element of "any port in a storm" to all this, as he had to step up to be the alpha cat, but also he was the *only* cat). Anyway, we think Ducky and the Mom person will probably grow even closer now.

    The Human and I are sending you all many purrs and hugs across the miles. XOXOXOXO

  142. Dear Family of Derby,
    We were off-line and didn't hear about Derby till way past the new year. Derby was one of brandi's dear friends and I loved him, too. We are so sorry for your loss. Mommy was kinda overwhelmed when she read about Derby crossing Over the Bridge, and very sad. We hope all our friends Over the Bridge had a nice party for Derby and made him feel very welcome.
    Ducky, you be brave and cuddle with your family, 'kay? You'll all feel a little better.
    love and headbumpies,
    QUINN
    (and Mom Carol sends her prayers)
